SG- Kobe Bryant
PG- Chris Paul
With a bunch of star players, like DWade, Brandon Jennings, Chris Bosh, Monta Ellis, etc., all on the bench.
Needless to say, it became unfair and ultimately boring to play. Only took 3-4 days to go from great to "don't-feel-like-touching-this-again."
And to make matters worse, whenever I'd encounter one of these guys with super teams and I actually started winning, by the 4th quarter, they'd pull b.s. like pausing the game and waiting until the final second before they're forced to forfeit before un-pausing the game, calling numerous 60 second timeouts with just a couple minutes left in the game with me obviously about to pull a W, and there was one bitch who kept pausing the game and playing replays over and over again because he knew my 20 point lead in the 4th quarter with 1 minute to go was insurmountable.
Oh, and don't let me forget about all the frikkin' 3-pt chuckers. I played against one guy who did nothing but chuck 3's all game. He hit maybe 15 out of 47 throughout the game.
Yep, this about sums up the mode. I love playing dudes who run lineups of Jordan-Kobe-Lebron-Durant-Dwight with Melo, Bill Russell, CP3, etc off bench and still suck at the game and find ways to lose. The only reason these guys can keep the game close is by overall difference in players. I'm here lighting these scrubs up with Gary Neal, Steve Novak, Austin Rivers and etc, why they struggle to score with Jordan/Lebron/Kobe.
